Eight games will take place at Brisbane Stadium during the FIFA Women's World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023. Five of those will come during the group stage - including Australia's matchday two meeting with Nigeria - while the Play-off for third place will round off the arena's three knockout fixtures. European champions England will take to the pitch against Haiti to kick off the stadium's tournament, before France and Brazil do battle in Group F on 29 July. Nigeria will return to Brisbane to face Republic of Ireland on matchday three of Group B, and two-time winners Germany will take on Korea Republic in Group H. The winners of Group D will then take on the runners-up of Group B in the Round of 16 on 7 August, with a quarter-final set to follow five days later.

History (from Wikipedia)

Brisbane Road has seen several developments in its history, but due to the second world war the first major improvement was the levelling of a grass bank and crash barrier installation in 1949. The terracing behind the goals was improved again in 1952, 1959 and 1960. In 1956 a small seated stand was dismantled and replaced with a stand from the decrepit Mitcham Stadium, which held 2,600 fans. In 1962, with Leyton Orient gaining promotion to the First Division, another wing was added to the main stand making the seating total 3,500. In 1978 the West Stand was converted into all-seating. In 1996 the terracing at the southern end of the ground was demolished, and used as a car park while Lottery funding to build a stand was (unsuccessfully) sought. The South Stand was eventually built in 1999, and was renamed The Tommy Johnston Stand on 5 September 2008.[2]

The ground is currently called the Breyer Group stadium for sponsorship reasons. In the past it was named after Leyton Orient's chairman at the time 
Barry Hearn's sports promotion company, Matchroom Sport, prior to which it was officially the Leyton Stadium, though fans still refer to it as Brisbane Road. The club registered an interest into moving into the Olympic Stadium following the 2012 Olympics, as the original plan was for this to have a capacity of about 25,000; however, the club's average attendance of about 5,000 meant that this was not a viable move. The eventual bids from both West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur to move into the stadium,[3] with capacity nearer 60,000, effectively ended Orient's interest. Brisbane Road is in very close proximity to both the Olympic Park and also Hackney Marshes.

On 6 May 2012, Brisbane Road hosted a 
Super League game between London Broncos and Bradford Bulls due to works on the Broncos' home stadium Twickenham Stoop, with Bradford winning 22–29.
